THRIVE is committed to making every effort to not interrupt important recovery services and to find alternative methods of doing so in light of this public health crisis. As we continue to monitor the coronavirus and communications from State, Federal and County organizations, we will continue to keep the THRIVE community up to date. As a reminder, the best way to protect yourself and others is to avoid being exposed to this virus. The CDC recommends the following: • Stay home when you are sick • Stay home if you have traveled in the last 14 days, or if you have been in contact with someone who has traveled in the last 14 days • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 30 seconds •Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol, if soap and water are not available • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
